The nation is at an inflection point on energy and climate policy. After a decade of rancorous partisan debate, a more constructive conversation must emerge that is anchored in innovation, supportive of economic growth, cognizant of scale and embraces all forms of non-carbon power. The Bipartisan Policy Center is at the vanguard of this effort and is seeking a Policy Analyst to support the broad energy portfolio at BPC.
BPC is a non-profit organization that combines the best ideas from both parties to promote health, security, and opportunity for all Americans. As the only Washington, DC-based think tank that actively promotes bipartisanship, BPC’s strength is anchored in the desire and ability to sustain effective relationships across diverse interests and ideology.
The successful candidate will be a strong team player who is able to support BPC’s dynamic energy program. Currently the team is focused on energy innovation, deep decarbonization, advanced nuclear, carbon capture, carbon removal, energy infrastructure permitting and siting, and building an effective coalition for legislative action. The analyst will report to an Associate Director.
